I’m just wondering. if the bikini your using in this promo is the hongyus bikini at rendo? it looks very similar.

I asked this question earlier, and the responder seemed to think that it was. However, the link you’ve shown seems to be for the V4 version of the bathing suit; DAZ sells the V5 version: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/hongyus-bikini-for-v5 I am .wondering if the different textures sets for it at Rendo will work on the V5 version. Lots of options there.

Oddly, the Stephanie 5 product page shows several rear views of the suit, but the product pages for both versions of the suit only show the front. It does seem that this is the right suit though. It’s quite nice.

Or it could be this: http://www.3duniverse.co.za:80/-/jasmin-bikini/item/329/productview

Edit: Whoops… sorry, got confused by the Image to compare S5 to V5 Shapes.

Wow - new figure released and only 3 pages of posts? I didn’t realize things had gotten this quiet around here *headscratch*....

Can anyone tell me - does anything in the Pro bundle require DS4.5?  I won’t upgrade my DS4, so….don’t want to buy something I can’t use right away…

I read through the product pages for ALL the products in the Pro Bundle, and a few of them do specify needing DS4.5. Most of them didn’t say anything about it, though.

It did get me thinking, though, that I might as well start using 4.5. The only plugin I have is GenX, which is being upgraded, and I don’t have any other older morphs (yet…I do plan to buy more) that I haven’t already converted. I really want some of the new features in 4.5; I can live without using GenX until it’s upgraded.

It’s still 51% for me… but I have to log in for that… meaning I have to be recognized as a PC Member… and 51% was the best Deal I got since release, so I’d guess you weren’t logged in when you looked at the prices before?

If the texture is supposed to be “Elite”, then why is it 4000 and not 4096? I had the same question about the Marie “Elite” Texture.

The “Elite” process refers to the use the methodology of creating the texture including the use of the 360 degree full body scanner not, necessarily, the resolution of the resulting files.

You can see portions of the body scanner process in the Making Reby Sky video at around the 28-29 second mark.

They look similar from the front, but the suit in the Stephanie 5 product pics has a thong back (http://cdn.daz3d.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/p/o/pop-up02_stephanie-5_.jpg), while the Jasmin suit has a lot more coverage. The Jasmin suit is a great bikini however; two nice features are the color randomizer, and the price: free. I use it a lot.

They’ve released the finished version of DS4.5. So, it’s pretty safe to upgrade. Some of the plugins needs more work, but many are already updated. Check the DAZ Studio forum for which plugins that are completed. I don’t think S5 needs 4.5 to work, as long as it’s Genesis.

So how long is the intro sale going to last?

And are the genitals included in the stephanie pro bundle any different from the ones in the v5 bundle?


not that those pieces of information should be in the intro post to begin with…..

They’ve added a new UV set but given that the file ID number is identical, resetting your V4 Pro edition probably gets you the new UV set too (though I haven’t confirmed this)

DavidGB can.  We were having a discussion about it in the Member’s only forum.  smile  He reset his V5 Pro bundle, and the Genitals were a new file that had S5 mapping as an option.

...so I wonder if her boobs can be dialed down to create a teen/preteen character like the Gen4 version allows.  Currently the breast mesh of V5/Genesis has the same deformation issues that V4 had when dialed down to a very petite size.

Knight22179 - 21 August 2012 11:46 PM

Don’t worry. She comes with 3 shapes. One is basic, another is curvy and another super model. The basic one comes with small boobs, just like Steph 4. She looks pre-teen to me, except the face.

...When was the last time you saw an actual pre-teen?  The basic shape is very much a short adult.  She doesn’t come with custom breast size morphs like S4 did, and while the Breasts Small morph helps a bit, it isn’t much better than what’s possible without S5.  And those hips don’t help, either.

Not interested in the giant leap backwards that is “Genesis 2”.

Would someone tell me how tall she is?  Specifically the curvy one.  Now that I’ve seen that she’s shorter than V5, I’m thinking the curvy S5 might be the right starting point for my genesis avatar revision.

A comparison with S4 would be helpful too.

Thanks.

Don’t know for sure, but I’d say it’s probably Hongyus Bikini for V5, available here in the DAZ store: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/hongyus-bikini-for-v5

Oh Okay that is why it looked so similar.

thanks for he reply back smile

I was wondering the same thing if the texture would be interchangeable.
though you properly could do the texture exchange in the surface tab setting
Thanks for the reply back smile
